God gives each of us gifts and talents to be used to build up the body of Christ that we may express God's love and grace to a hurting world. Review some of our church's opportunities listed below. Call the contact person to join in this adventure of growing in Christ, growing together as a church body, and getting to see God at work in our midst. If you cannot decide, call Ruth Demby and she will help you!
PROMISING FUTURES SUMMER CAMP
July 21 - 25: Journey with our Promising Futures children as they learn how God gives us joy on our journey no matter our circumstances.
We need volunteers for:
Music: We're starting each morning with upbeat Happiness songs along with some songs of lament!
Recreation: We're looking for some youth experienced in leading recreation.
Bible Messages: We're looking for those who can act the parts from the Bible Messages.
Praying in Color: Using the Kid's Edition of Sybil MacBeth's book, we will help children to express prayers with crayons or markers.
Arts and Crafts: Help as the children Paint bowls for the Food Bank's Empty Bowl Luncheon.
Shepherds: Ultimately the Lord is our shepherd but all kids need someone to guide them during camp. Call Janice Hale (770) 842-9604 for more information and to volunteer.
